Entrepreneurship - Program Description


Website: www.gvsu.edu/business

The entrepreneurship major is designed to provide students broad intellectual and practical skills and a demonstrated ability to apply knowledge using skills such as creativity, critical thinking, communication, and collaboration in real-world settings to help them develop an entrepreneurial mindset and/or new venture. Students will learn to identify opportunities, solve problems, build business strategies, test and validate assumptions, execute, and present. Through a series of courses that include hands-on and experiential learning opportunities, students will develop the knowledge and skills that will serve as a springboard for students who wish to start, run, or grow their own personal or family-owned business.

Students who pursue the entrepreneurship major are required to complete a second Seidman College major in a functional discipline, such as finance, marketing, accounting, etc. Students should contact the Seidman Undergraduate Student Services Office early in their program for a suggested pattern of coursework.

The following programs are available:
